Ai No Namida 10Hachi's excited barking started the second he rang the doorbell. He used every second to calm down enough so that Sakura wouldn't notice anything wrong. No point in making her worry. The clicking of the door brought his attention back. Sakura answered the door with a guilty expression, which made him worry.Ai No Namida 10 by xYamiTenshix
"What's wrong?" He stepped closer and held her shoulders.
"I'm sorry Sasuke." She wouldn't look him in the eye and he had no idea why she was apologizing. Lifting her chin, he looked into her guilt filled irises.
"After you took me to my car, I saw you fighting with your friends. It was about me wasn't it?" Crap, so much for leaving her in the dark.
"It doesn't matter."
"Yes it does Sasuke. They're your friends! I don't want you to lose them because of me."
"I don't care what they think of us. I choose to be with you."
"They'll be there for you longer than I can Sasuke."
"Stop that! Just don't think about it!" She gave him a sardonic grin.
"It's hard to Sasuke, and it's
Ai No Namida 9Since the bench area had food all over it, they sat against the wall next to the door. Their sides touched as they leaned on each other. His hand held on to hers.Ai No Namida 9 by xYamiTenshix
"You knew what was going to happen. Why didn't you stay away in the beginning?"
"It was hard to." She whispered eyes closed. Sasuke looked down at her head perching on his shoulder.
"Why?" She didn't answer right away, but he waited patiently.
"Because it's you Sasuke. Had it been anyone else, it would have been easier to walk away."
"What do you mean?" She looked up at him and squeezed his hand. A smile graced her face.
"When you told me you liked me, I was actually very happy under all the angst. This may seem weird, but I've honestly liked you, maybe even loved you, for years." That did surprise him. They've been in the same school since preschool, but they've never really talked to each, at least according to his memory.
"When did it start?" A pretty blush came to her face.
"It's a little embarrassing to
Ai No Namida 8Things were falling back into place, for Sasuke at least. Sakura returned to school and they fell back into routine. Everything was normal again until one day...Ai No Namida 8 by xYamiTenshix
"Sasu-chan, you're father left these files. Can you deliver them to him?" Not like he could refuse either way, plus he had nothing better to do at the moment. He took the files from his mother and she thanked him before going off to do chores and whatnot.
The drive to the hospital was uneventful. Fortunately, when Sasuke came through the doors, he found his father in the lobby, but he wasn't alone. He was talking with Sakura. Curiosity hit him like a ton of bricks. He moved a little closer, but any closer they were bound to notice him. He still couldn't hear them so he tried reading their expressions. From what he can tell it was a grim conversation. Deciding he had no reason to meddle or hide, he strode over to them. He couldn't help but hear the end of their talk.
"Just be careful and don't strain yourself."
"I know and than
Ai No Namida 7After the whole ordeal with Karin, Sasuke took Sakura to the nurse's room. Unfortunately, she wasn't there. Sasuke sat her down on one of the beds, and then proceeded to the fridge near the sink. While he was shuffling through its contents, Sakura watched his movements.Ai No Namida 7 by xYamiTenshix
"You don't have to do this Sasuke. It was only a slap."
"Hn," and he went on with his business.
"You're going to be late for class."
Sakura gave a sigh of resignation and let her eyelids flutter shut. She was feeling hot and exhausted. The cold hard surface that met her cheek made her flinch. Sasuke was standing in front of her, ice pack in hand. She reached her hand up to hold it against her cheek. Their fingers brushed lightly as her hand took his place. She knew the shiver that went down her spine had nothing to do with the ice, which felt quite nice against her burning skin. Her heart leapt when the cool flesh of Sasuke's hand met her forehead.
"You're burning up. You should go home," blunt as always, but he d
